2006: Gil Cedillo supports illegal immigration boycott, shills for cheap labor employers - 09/18/11

The video below has a 2006 speech from California state Assemblyman Gil Cedillo in support of a resolution supporting the "Great American Boycott" immigration march.

Harry Reid: "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform"; vile Durbin confused about citizenship - 04/11/10

Yesterday, yet more marches in support of massive illegal immigration were held across the U.S., with U.S. Sens. Harry Reid appearing at the event in Las Vegas and Dick Durbin at the one in Chicago. At the one in Vegas, Reid said (link): "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform." One of the things I worry about is that he just might be right. The possible opposition is largely incompetent and is led by those with a loose borders agenda. It isn't difficult to imagine several paper tigers who would initially oppose amnesty caving to a compromise and trying to...

NumbersUSA harassed at immigration march by far-left, open borders fascists - 03/22/10

Roy Beck of Numbers USA attended yesterday's pro-illegal immigration march, and you can watch the reception he received on the video at which is also attached right or below. On the video, persons dressed as mimes surrounded him as he attempted to speak to the camera and blew whistles at him in an attempt to shut him up. Not only that, but from their posting about the day's events (link): After threatening Roy, the mimes were ordered by Park Police to remain between 7th and 14th streets. Then they huddled and one ran to Park Police claiming one of Roy's African American...

March for America: illegal immigration rally, March 21, 2010 Washington DC - 02/12/10

On March 21, 2010, yet another pro-illegal immigration march will be held in Washington DC, this sponsored ultimately by the far-left National Council of Churches [1]. The next day they'll apparently be conducting a lobbying effort, sending attendees to speak to their representatives (presumably illegal aliens will take a pass on that event). The march is associated with Ecumenical Advocacy Days, a mini-convention focusing this year on the topic of "Migration". One of the speakers will be Frank Sharry. More on EAD at, and more on the march as it develops. Other groups...

Mike Kingsbury /SEIU offers bad economics, bad logic (legalization as a "wage floor") - 05/04/09

Mike Kingsbury of the Service Employees International Union offers the exclamation point-rich blog post "What a week for immigration reform!" ( He's so excited he forgot to think things through, saying this about the recent immigration marches: Why we as citizens don't do this more often, I don't know. I do know that putting a floor under the most vulnerable workers in this country will help maintain a standard of living for all of us. And this year's May Day theme emphasizing America's immigrant history - immigrant roots, immigrant...

2009 immigration marches get tea party-level turnout (actually even less) - 05/01/09

The 2009 marches in support of illegal immigration are getting a turn-out roughly equivalent to that of the tea parties or less. For the high side of figures, turn to the Fair Immigration Reform Movement at

Illegal immigration marches: May 1, 2008 - 05/01/08

This year's marches for "immigrant rights" - i.e., to give rights to illegal aliens to which they aren't entitled - were much less attended and made much less of an impact than those in 2006.

Barack Obama statement supports illegal immigration marches - 05/01/08

Barack Obama has released a statement supporting the May Day illegal immigration marches [1]. He misleads by failing to note that the marches are designed to benefit those who are here illegally rather than legal immigrants. He's also apparently proud of having spoken at the May 1, 2006 event in Chicago; the main organizers of that event have links to the Mexican government with one even being an official with a foreign political party. That same official is a "key organizer" of this year's Chicago march [2]. Two years ago, I came home to Chicago to witness the mobilization of hundreds of...

Is Barack Obama a Muslim who practices Islam and who attended a madrassa? - 01/27/08

Is Barack Obama a Muslim who practices Islam and who attended a madrassa (madrasa) in Indonesia? Despite whatever emails you might have received, it appears that the answer to that is no. According to him, he's a "committed Christian" (link). His church is the Trinity United Church of Christ, whose pastor has made some rather questionable statements.

June 24: illegal immigration rally at Hollywood and Vine - 05/08/07

According to this, the ANSWER-linked Juan Jose Gutierrez - director of Latino Movement USA - is planning yet another illegal immigration march, this time for June 24 at the famous corner of Hollywood and Vine: "All of us here today are united in expressing in the clearest voice possible that our community will not be intimidated into inaction... The struggle for democratic rights and democratic immigration reform will continue."

The Wit And Wisdom of Illegal Immigration Marchers - 05/01/07

No, the pages aren't blank, but something else is. In all these reports, the listed quotes and all the rest are presented completely unopposed. No one is around to point out to them some extremely basic facts: a) they weren't kidnapped and brought here against their will, b) they're already citizens, just not of this country, c) they're welcome to leave at any time, and d) U.S. citizenship is a privilege, not a right. * "Us not being in school is showing the government they're going to lose money if they send us all back to Mexico." [1] * "They should help them get their papers, they're out...

Enrique Morones, Nativo Lopez on "Migrant March II" - 02/02/07

From this: Dozens of immigrant-rights advocates will depart today from San Diego to drum up support for immigration reform. Called Migrant March II [aka "Second National March for Immigrant Rights"], the caravan of mostly Latino leaders will drive to Brownsville, Texas, and back, meeting along the way with community leaders and residents in cities along the border, organizers said. Exactly one year ago, advocates led a similar caravan to push their agenda for comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to legalization for the nation's estimated 12 million illegal immigrants....

Mayday/May 1, 2007: another illegal immigration boycott - 01/07/07

Mark it on your calendars, because illegal aliens and their supporters will supposedly be holding yet another mass walkout/boycott/march on May 1 of this year. And, there's supposedly going to be a planning meeting on February 3 and 4 at Loyola Marymount Law School in Los Angeles. The specific target of the boycott is Walmart.

Darryl Fears: the Democratic line on immigration - 11/20/06

Darryl Fears of the Washington Post offers "Republicans Lost Ground With Latinos In Midterms". As might be expected, it's so full of misleading statements, superficial analysis, hidden agendas, and hidden assumptions that a full treatment would be novel-length: ...Latinos [gave] the GOP only 30 percent of their vote as strident House immigration legislation inspired by Republicans and tough-talking campaign ads by conservative candidates roiled the community. It was a 10-point drop from the lowest estimated Latino vote percentage two years ago, and a 14-point drop from the highest... Of...

ICIRR in suit against Terry Goddard over Western Union wire transfers - 10/19/06

The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights ("ICIRR") is "sponsoring" a class action lawsuit against Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard over that state's program that tries to stop human smuggling by seizing Western Union wire transfers that meet certain criteria. ICIRR is "sponsoring" three nobody plaintiffs - at least one of whom is a legal resident - who had money seized and couldn't get it back because they couldn't prove that the transfers were legitimate. The attorney is Matt Piers; another attorney who may have just filed the papers is Tim Eckstein (azstar). As detailed...

Chicago Giant put rest of country on notice - 10/07/06

link Chicago 'Giant' put rest of country on notice/April 2, 2006/Scott Fornek It started with about two dozen Latino community leaders trading ideas in a former church in the Pilsen neighborhood, hashing out how best to protest a U.S. House bill that would crack down on illegal immigration. It ended three weeks later with a rally in the Loop attended by more than 100,000.

Washington DC illegal immigration march: <5000 show up; Ted Kennedy - 09/08/06

Senator Edward M. Kennedy ("Teddy", "Ted") was one of the featured speakers at yesterday's illegal immigration rally in Washington D.C. It was supposed to be a big deal, with up to 500,000 people expected. Instead, according to the WaPo, less than 5,000 people showed up.

Tainted National Alliance for Immigrant Rights to march on Labor Day - 08/16/06

The National Alliance for Immigrant Rights is organizing pro-illegal immigration marches for Labor Day in, among others, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Dallas, and New York. That's according to one of their spokespersons, Nativo Lopez of the Hermandad Mexicana Nacional. And, as the first link points out, one of the leaders of the NAIR is an official with Mexico's PRD Party. So, who's linked to these extremists and Fifth Columnists? The protest in Long Beach will include: Teamsters, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and other union members will join pro-illegal immigrant...

Karl Rove's pro-illegal immigration extended network - 07/15/06

Let's take a look at Karl Rove's new friends, the National Council of The Race ("La Raza") and who they're working with. The group Defend Colorado New tried to pass Proposition 55 (similar to Arizona's Prop. 200 or CA's Prop. 187), but in June they were thwarted by a possibily activist CO Supreme Court. On the other side is the deceptively-named Keep Colorado Safe. Their front people include former Denver mayor Federico Pena and former monkey-shiner Gary Hart. However, as discussed here, most of KCS's money is coming from... inside the Beltway. The most generous supporter is the Service...

California State Senate supports foreign citizens marching in our streets - 04/27/06

In a shocking - but not surprising - move, the California State Senate has endorsed the May 1 illegal immigration boycott and march: SCR113. This isn't suprising considering that many California legislators frequently act more like their Mexican counterparts. It's only shocking that they would be so bold and that the resolution would be so utterly dishonest.

Illegal immigration supporters split over May 1 boycott - 04/20/06

Rachel Swarns of the New York Times informs us in "Immigrant Groups Plan Campaign to Bring Legal Changes" that: 1. There's a split among illegal immigration supporters. Some groups continue to support the "Great American Boycott of 2006", while others, including those in the "National Capital Immigration Coalition", oppose the boycott. 2. The illegal immigration-supporting groups plan to "transform the immigrant community into a powerful, organized political force" and plan to encourage voting by "immigrants". Regarding the second, "immigrants" can't vote. Only native-born or naturalized...

Think Progress, Ezra Klein, AP downplay organizers of illegal immigration marches - 04/13/06

Georgia illegal aliens protest organized by former Mexican consul - 03/24/06

[See the first update for more] Tim Molloy of the AP offers a roundup of the recent protest by illegal aliens who are demanding rights to which they aren't entitled in the falsely-titled "Immigration Rallies Draw Thousands Nationwide". It contains the following: Teodoro Maus, an organizer of the Georgia protest, estimated as many as 80,000 Hispanics did not show up for work. Molloy or his editors are apparently too shy to tell us that Maus isn't just a member of the "Coordinating Committee of Community Leaders". He's also a former Mexican consul. As with other professions, whether anyone...

More pro-illegal immigration propaganda from the Washington Post - 03/22/06

Darryl Fears of the WaPo offers "Immigration Debate Heats Up": Pro-immigrant activists are planning an April 10 protest in 10 cities that could pull tens of thousands of immigrant workers from their jobs. A coalition of groups including the AFL CIO, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, Catholic bishops, the Day Without an Immigrant coalition in Philadelphia and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will meet today on Capitol Hill to announce their plans. Given the news that millions of citizens of other countries have entered our country illegally and are now marching to be given rights...

Illegal aliens march in Chicago, get support from Blago, Gutierrez, local media - 03/10/06

Up to a few hundred thousand illegal aliens and their supporters marched for immigration "reform" in Chicago earlier today. Among those supporters are the local news media and politicians. The news media took the opportunity to send out their ethnically-biased reporters who offer some rather non-journalistic propaganda.
